Nairobi Incubation Centre, the Nailab will on May 16th and 17th alongside Lakehub Kisumu and the ICT Authority hold a premier hackathon in Kisumu, at the Kisumu Hotel.
The 2 day event targets to bring together 100 tech entreprenuers from the western region to develop solutions themed on health, unemployment and Insecurity.
“We as Nailab hope to grow collaborative development among the entreprenuers in the region and also assist the entreprenuers better the quality of solutions developed by offering them a chance to interact with mentors and coaches and other professionals from the region during the 2 day event,” said Josephine Mwangi Nailab’s communications manager.
“This is also a great forum for the entreprenuers within the region to meet and get to interact with fellow entreprenuers and also get to know the tech bodies within the region that are at hand to assist.”
This will be Nailab’s major hackathon out of its premises after a successful one last year in Mombasa at the JKUAT.
The incubation centre aims to hold such events across the country to help promote an entrepreneurial culture in our society and also get to understand the needs of the tech communities in the region. Mwangi added that it is also a great opportunity for the incubator to get to understand the different challenges the tech communities face in the likelihood of setting up satellite incubators through out the country.
